How do museums use space to create atmosphere?

In museums, the importance of showcase design cannot be ignored. A good display cabinet can not only protect the artwork, but also provide a better viewing experience for the audience. This article will introduce you to the precautions and key points of museum display cabinet design.

1. Protecting Artworks

Safety: Ensure that the structure of the showcase is stable and free of shaking to prevent artwork from being damaged due to instability of the showcase. At the same time, it is necessary to ensure that the glass, door locks and other components of the showcase are safe and reliable to prevent accidents.

Dust-proof and moisture-proof: The display cabinet must have good sealing performance to prevent the intrusion of dust and moisture. Appropriate use of auxiliary measures such as dust covers and desiccants to keep exhibits clean and dry.

Appropriate lighting: Reasonably control the lighting brightness of the showcase to avoid damage to the artwork caused by direct strong light. Choose low-UV, low-glare lamps to reduce light damage to precious cultural relics.

2. Improve viewing experience

Spatial layout: Reasonably plan the spatial layout of the showcase to ensure that each exhibit has enough display space to avoid blocking each other. At the same time, consider the viewing route of the audience and guide them to appreciate the art in an orderly manner.

Visual effect: Pay attention to the appearance design of the showcase to coordinate with the overall style of the art gallery. Reasonable use of glass, metal and other materials creates a unique visual effect and makes the exhibits more prominent.

Interactivity: Consider increasing the interactivity of the showcase, such as setting up touch screens, interactive games, etc., so that the audience can have a deeper understanding of the story behind the artwork. At the same time, guided tours are provided to provide visitors with more help in viewing the exhibition.

3. Green and environmental protection

Environmentally friendly materials: Give priority to renewable, pollution-free and environmentally friendly materials, such as wood, aluminum, etc. Try to avoid using materials containing harmful substances such as formaldehyde.

Energy conservation and emission reduction: On the premise of meeting functional requirements, try to reduce the use of materials and reduce the energy consumption and emissions of showcases. At the same time, natural light should be rationally utilized to reduce energy waste caused by artificial lighting.

Recycling and reuse: Reasonably recycle and process damaged or eliminated display cabinets to achieve resource reuse. This helps reduce environmental pollution and promote sustainable development.

To sum up, the design of museum display cabinets needs to pay attention to three major aspects: protecting artworks, improving viewing experience, and being green and environmentally friendly. Through reasonable design and planning, a showcase that is safe, reliable, beautiful and practical can be created to bring a better viewing experience to the audience while protecting precious cultural relics from damage.
